no one here in washington or new york or l.a. for that matter seems to care or even realize that maybe because they're doing better than ever. it's a problem. that's it for us tonight. sean is interviewing bill o'rielly in a few minutes. we suspect he has an opening monologue. >> sean: thanks, tucker, always a great show. welcome to "hannity". bill o'rielly is joining us. talking about the nfl national anthem controversy. the mainstream media, the political world, donald trump and his new book. michelle malkin will join us in a few minutes. first president trump doubling down on his criticism of nfl national anthem protesters by defending the military, flag and anthem and those who keep us safe while the liberal mainstream destroy trump media and democrats do what they always do. they're making this about race when it's not. and that is tonight's very important breaking news opening
monologue. so first tonight i want to take a few moments and i want to thank all of you for your support and your loyalty. last night you did make this show number one in cable by far. there is a lot of people and the mainstream media on the left, they want the voice of this show silenced. they want your voices silenced and there are even efforts this very day to silence a boycott and get me fired. this threat is very real. the sad truth. if you're a conservative and have a conservative worldview people in the media today, guess what? there are people paid a lot of money, well-funded to sit and watch every single second, minute of every single day in the hopes that i say one word, one phrase, one sentence that they deem politically incorrect and then they can use it to get me fired. now with that said i made a promise last night. we won't stop on this program until my dying breath as long as they'll have me to give you news and strong opinion and information you won't get anywhere else.
we do hope that you and your friends, you'll tell your friends to join us every single night and hope you set your dvr. again i thank you. now tonight's top story. president trump is refusing to back down. he is now calling out the nfl, national anthem protestors who are disrespecting the flag, the military and our country. here is what the president said earlier today in the rose garden. >> i was at walter reed hospital and i saw so many great people. who are missing arms and legs and badly injured. they were fighting for our country, our flag, our national anthem. for people to disrespect that by kneeling during the playing of our national anthem i think is disgraceful. i think it's a very important thing for the nfl to not allow people to kneel during the playing of our national anthem. to respect our country and to respect our flag. >> sean: the president is dead on when it comes to the kneeling issue. the national anthem, the flag is
about saluting, honoring our military. remember, it was written after the battle of fort mchenry. for all the president's critics out there, he shouldn't talk about this, he was right to call attention to this issue. all these nfl players coaches, owners, the ones kneeling because of apparent social injustice or to protest the president himself or to raise awareness for whatever other leftist issues they may be promoting, well, i make the argument they're completely uninformed. if they are about inclusion and unity and understanding, then why don't they sit down with the brave men and women who fought and bled for this country. maybe they should learn why every american should proudly stand for the flag, for "the star spangled banner". why don't they talk to the mothers and fathers. i've interviewed them. who lost their sons and daughters or talk to those whose limbs were blown off fighting
for this country. they would be happy to explain where people should stand. this is about respect. this is about respect for the military, for our country, for our flag and those who fought under the flag. it is plain and simple, which is why these acts of protest are beyond disrespectful. if some nfl players, coaches, owners, you want to keep doing it, you go for it. here is my prediction. people will continue to change the channel and they'll stay home on football sunday. like i said last night saturday is now my official football day unless and until this is resolved. according to the "wall street journal" direct tv is letting at least some customers cancel subscriptions to sunday ticket package of nfl games and obtain refunds if they cite players national anthem protests as the reason. look what is happening around the country. look at this. people who spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars on nfl memorabilia are burning their jerseys. they were the once prized
treasures and they're that upset. while president trump is defending the flag, the military, republicans like paul ryan who will be on the show tomorrow night are coming up supporting the president. let's take a look. >> people are clearly within their rights to express themselves how they see fit. my own view we shouldn't do it on the anthem. the national anthem, our flag, and the people who defend it and represent it, that should be celebrated everywhere and always. that's my opinion. >> sean: the attorney general jeff sessions is backing the president. watch what he said. >> president of the united states has free speech. he believes and i believe that people should take a moment before a football game and stand when the national anthem is played. what's wrong with that? it's not political, it is not an affirmation of trump or hillary clinton or any other agenda. it is simply an affirmation and respect for the united states of america and this great heritage of freedom and for these football players prosperity that
they have. so i think that's a perfectly appropriate thing for the president to say. >> sean: taking the knee or staying in a locker room during the national anthem is easy to do. addressing real problems that impact real people and doing something about that is a lot harder. let's start by helping the people we always talk about, the millions of forgotten men and women in this country. 50 million americans in poverty, 50 million on food stamps. 90 million americans out of the labor force. the nfl, you want to continue to disrespect the country, the military, that's giving players and owners the opportunity to make millions and in some cases billions of dollars it is time to stop taking hand-outs from the american taxpayers. i doubt you'll hear this elsewhere. let's look at the numbers. the average public subsidy for an nfl stadium is $266 million taxpayer dollars. since the year 2000. it is estimated $3.2 billion in
federal taxpayer money has gone to help build private sports stadiums and factor in local and state funding for stadiums. that number grows to $5.9 billion and $6.7 billion over the last 20 years. if that's not shocking enough, well, there is the nfl's paid patriotism scandal. there was a senate report that found from the years 2012 to 2015 the department of defense actually paid the nfl $6.1 million to honor troops and for recruiting promotions. now, the league did pay back $700,000 of that but only after coming under intense criticism. what about the rest of the money? those numbers are astounding. now some in the nfl they don't want to stand or honor the flag, the country, the military, then stop taking all the money from the american people. let's be honest, you know what? they don't need it in the nfl. now, while the national anthem
is about respecting the military, the country, our flag the democrats and members of the mainstream left wing establishment media are trying to make this all about race. this is what they always do. it's part of their playbook. i pointed out so many time on this program every two years or four years the democratic party plays the race card creating division and causing unrest in the country. i played those spots and thoughts over and over again. now democrats are doing the same thing with the national anthem protest. they're also using this opportunity to attack president trump. watch this from just two prominent democrats. take a look. >> he went down to the heart of dixie in alabama before an all-white or mostly white crowd, the good old boys, so to speak, and he engaged in what many of us i think can fairly call race saving. the president of the united
states chose to pull the sheets off and reveal himself in terms of his tendency to be a racial arsonist. >> it is quite telling he is willing to attack black athletes. he never says anything of an insulting manner toward white supremacists offer neo-nazis or vladimir putin. >> sean: the destroy trump establishment media are not far behind echoing anything the democrats say. all their talking points. take a look. >> if anyone believes this is about the flag, then you must believe rosa park's protest was about a bus. >> he is playing along with white identity politics. >> we've heard this language report from white people in the deep south referring to african-americans and black athletes who they feel are taking their place. so this wasn't a dog whistle. it was the bull horn. >> clearly -- >> he has walked into a fight about race and he knew it was about race.
no way you could call it anything else. >> he is a racist. he came as close as he could possibly come to shouting in a rally the n word. that's what he did down there. >> sean: fake news, conspiracy news and the left is in a total frenzy over this desperately trying to score as many cheap political points as possible. democratic lawmakers, maxine waters, al green are calling for president trump's impeachment over his nfl comments. really? watch this insanity. >> he started dog whistling to that constituency during the campaign and started his division and don't forget when it's about race, we win because they frighten people, they play into racism. i hope people understand it's about all of this that he should not be the president of the united states of america. and we have to get ready for impeachment. >> mr. speaker, i denounce the
comments that were made and i rise to announce that next week, mr. speaker, i will bring a privileged resolution before the congress of the united states of america. i will stand here in the well of the congress and i will call for the impeachment of the president of the united states of america. >> sean: so pathetic and predictable. two democrats took a knee on the house floor as a show of solidarity with the nfl protestors. let's watch this. >> you tell me which of those children's mothers or the son -- that is racism. you cannot deny it and not run for it and i kneel in honor of them. >> i kneel. >> i join so many now in the nfl and elsewhere in taking a knee for the america that we all aspire it to be. >> sean: so the democrats fake moral outrage that knows no bounds. they will literally do and say
anything to try to damage and delegitimize president trump. they've been doing it since last november. that includes playing the race card every single chance they get. even though president trump has explicitly said his criticism of the nfl has nothing to do with race. it's about patriotism and it should be obvious to everyone except, of course, those that want to play the race card like they do every two and four years. president trump never mentioned race when he called out the nfl because it has nothing to do with race and since democrats are claiming president trump is trying to create a racial divide in this country, we have to ask, where was the outrage when president obama was jumping to conclusions without any facts or information, high profile race cases in this country and saying outrageous things that did have an impact on the public? you may remember this. >> the police acted stupidly.
there is a long history in this country of african-americans and latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. that's just a fact. when travon martin was first shot i said this could have been my son. another way of saying that is travon martin could have been me 35 years ago. >> we have to close the justice gap. how justice is applied but also how it is perceived and experienced, that's what we saw in ferguson this summer when michael brown was killed and the community was divided. stains the heart of black children who feel as if no matter what he does, he will always be under suspicion. >> sean: rush judgments, rushing to judgment, no evidence, no belief that somebody is innocent until they're proven guilty. we can go back further to barack obama's book dreams of my father. the media never pointed it out, we did.
he quoted the reverend from the church of gd america. listen to candidate obama saying this. >> it is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of port-au-prince see in a year and apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in the another hemisphere. >> sean: these are things you'll never see from members of the mainstream media because they're so abusively biased and corrupt. by the way, they want to silence shows like this and they work hard at it. for example. where was the left rushing to condemn those comments. he wasn't a candidate but he was in politics. they didn't do it because playing the race card, dividing the country along racial lines is how democrats think they need to win and get votes. you know what? they do whatever they want and they'll never change. sadly. it is not good for the country. people i think now are on to their game.
it is getting old. it's pretty disgusting. tonight we have a challenge for the left. instead of you trying to take down president trump 24/7, 365, exploiting this nfl issue, why don't you stand up for things that matter. our country, our flag, our brave men and women who fight and bleed and die for all of our freedoms? joining us now the host michelle malkin investigates. welcome back. thanks for joining us. what are your thoughts? >> well, i think you have it exactly right, sean. the resistance movement has jumped the shark and the race baiting that you have outlined here is so noxious and it is a shame that so many nfl leaders and the nfl brass have put themselves squarely on the wrong side of the majority of americans who act every day in good faith. i've heard such an outcry from people in my email box and i'm
sure you have an your show and who watch your show on both tv and radio, sean, from military families especially. it was very symbolic and important that donald trump this weekend declared sunday gold star mothers and families day because these are the forgotten people that you've already paid tribute to and are talking about, sean. somebody sent me a very moving picture which i posted on my instagram that said we stand for the flag, we kneel for the fallen. and the fact that you had so few nfl players who had the guts to do that, it just shows you how much the social justice mob has hijacked not just the sports industry but the entertainment industry. they're paying for it. viewership is down, attendance is down, advertising is down. if they double down on stupid nfl will stand for no fans left. >> sean: what about the average
pay for men and women in the service? again, they're risking their lives. it's around $40,000. what about the average nfl player? their average salary is .2.44 million a year. i'll grant you they have short careers, average career three or four years. that's not the point. that's a lot of money and families pay a lot of money to go see these games. so i'm kind of trying to understand do they not get that this is a big deal for a lot of people? and that this is going to backfire against them? >> yeah, there is a huge disconnect here between the elites of the entertainment and sports industry and the people who pay their salaries and who consume their products. again, this is an industry-wide thing. it's the same reason why you see the summer box office movie was the bomb. all these awards shows for entertainment all of their viewership is down. you cannot afford to insult the very customer base that keeps
you afloat. and lasts for long. i think you made a very good point, a point i've made for years, sean, about how the nfl is essentially a quasi-public entity. subsidized to the tune of billions of dollars at the local, state and federal level. for all of these fair weather friends of the corporate free speech and first amendment now to be up in arms about the president criticizing them because they are so-called private entity. give me a break. what a joke. the nfl hogs have had their noses in the trough of the public for decades now and yes, they will be held accountable by taxpayers. >> sean: michelle, well said as always. thank you for being with us. when we come back bill o'rielly, he's next. and happ
way back like you did it. people want to see it. >> no, no, no. >> sean: how are you? and do you miss the daily grind? >> no, i was in the ocean all summer, had a great time. i'm fine, i'm teed off but first i want to tell everybodydy last night "hannity" kicked msnbc's butt. he has taken over. >> slaughtered. i know some people -- people are angry about the nfl because the much bigger story than football players. i want to address this comment to the nfl players today and they'll get this. when the jaguars and ravens werl over in london and they kneeled down on a foreign soil and then they stood up for the british national anthem.
i was angry and sad because i don't believe those players know what they are doing. about 3,000 miles east of you there are american military people in kandahar, afghanistan, whose entertainment revolves around the armed forces network that broadcasts football games. i was over there in '07. i watched football games with them. can you imagine putting your life on the line in afghanistan and having just the leisure time and wanting the watch a football game and seeing your players, your american players, disrespect the country and the flag on foreign soil. can you imagine how painful that was? >> sean: how could they possibly not know? >> they don't know.thtril >> sean: most of these players are the best of the best. i have great respect for their athletic talent, their ability, their agility and hard work. they went to college, bill. those kids played college ball. >> it's a mob mentality.
anti-trump demonstration is what it has morphed into. nobody is saying the players don't have a right to their opinion about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. if you want to feel america is an evil country where the white supremacists stalk innocents.wa blacks , you can believe that. but it's not true. it's not true. so there is informed dissent and then there is pack dissent. that's what we're into now, pack dissent. okay, he says one thing, i say another. and the league and the owners have lost control of it. but the american people i firmly believe 65%, maybe 70% of the american people do not like this situation, are offended by this situation. >> sean: how much of this is related? i played president obama.
he rushed to judgment when it came to baltimore and freddie gray and it never happened hands up, don't shoot. travon martin and george zimmerman. i learned in atlanta, a local radio guy, you don't rush to judgment in the richard jewel case. the president at the time rushed to judgment. that narrative, people believe hands up, don't shoot happened. >> a lot of people believe propaganda. one of the reasons i wrote "killing england" we can know how we got our freedom. i would like to give these guys the book to the nfl locker room. most would not read the book. they're caught up in emotion. this is emotion what's happening now.io but the wider picture is -- you pointed it out in your monologue. the far left wants to drive the narrative that the usa is an evil country.rr why? they want to change everything. the constitution, the economic system, the leadership, the electoral system.he they want across the boardd change. they use stuff like this to do it. these players are being used.
>> sean: where does this end up? i think they're in a dilemma now. we tried to see the dallasmm cowboys threading the needle.e look at the average family. i grew up in a small cape cod house, three older sisters, one bathroom. that is hell on earth, by the way, bill. 50 by 100 lot. franklin square, you know where i grew up. i grew up there. if you take a family of four to a football game,fa basketball game, baseball game, average ticket about $100. it's close to a grand. you buy hot dogs, you buy a jersey, you buy all this stuff, it is so much money and people literally sacrifice and save for that. how are they going to react? how does this end? >> first of all the league will have to do something.l i wrote a column for the hill
about it. say to the players we know that some of you don't like thehe country or want to get a point across. this is the wrong forum. this is not the forum to do it. so if you don't want to stand up for the national anthem stay in the locker room and then come out. we don't want any political demonstrations because we don't allow pro-am can demonstrations. the league don't allow that. there were many giant players, new york giant and jet playerssh after 9/11 wanted to show on their uniform their solidarity and the nfl wouldn't allow it. >> sean: we have the slaughter of cops in dallas and they wanted to honor the local police. they wouldn't let them. >> you have to be consistent. you guys who don't want to stand up for the national anthem stay in the locker. after it's over, you can come out. that's it, okay, all right? >> sean: it would be certainly wouldn't be selective enforcement of the rules. let me ask you a broader, bigger question. you talked about this for many years on your show.yo
you have your podcast now and your columns. but every two and four years and then when we have these other bigger issues emerge. the issue of race is used as a wedge issue. if you elect republicans the black churches will burn. al gore saying to a predominantly black audience republicans have the wrong agenda for african-americans. they don't want to count you in the census. that's a lie. it divides the country. it is dividing the country along racial lines in a way that's hurtful to the country. >> the media and entertainers drive it. there is a reason why it's happening. a year ago you didn't hear the words white supremacist. it was white privilege. in my neighborhood eight miles away from hannity's home i had guys in undershirts falling apart going where is my white privilege, all right? that's what you had a year ago. it's morphed into white supremacists now and people are
are buying it. the far left agents, i think they're evil. want to destroy the constitution. they want it all changed. who forged it? slave owners, thomas jefferson, george washington we can't have a constitution that they made. we have to have a new one. that's the endgame.thwe >> sean: you were on my radio show and i think this was the most important point you made that i agreed with that i think is the most dangerous for the country. because you took on the monument issue.be you can add the nfl issue now and institutions in this country that are under fire every day. i'll add to that the two to four year playing of the race card the only -- one of the big weapons in the playbook of the democrats. but ultimately you say if they get rid of the monuments and history, they can take a knee during the anthem and disrespect the flag, ultimately it's really the constitution they want to change.
i want you to make that point. >> they're after -- they don't want capitalism. they don't want the electoral college. they don't want white people generally calling the shots. so they have to mobilize minority americans to be angry. we did this on billorielly.com almost every night. i'm paralleling you on our website. if you understand history. most people don't. >> sean: i want to get to that. you know what my favorite part of the game is in the end of the game is the best of the best warriors battling it and fighting it they get in a circle and say a prayer. in football. stay right there. we have breaking news out of the associated press now out of alabama. roy moore has won thee alabama gop primary runoff.ow i've said it's a referendum on mitch mcconnell. we'll talk about president trump and the country and congressss d the media which is more corrupt

>> sean: >> sean: fox news alert. associated press projecting that roy moore will win the alabama senate runoff as we continue with the author of the best selling book "killing england, the brutal struggle for american independence." bill o'rielly is with us. i would say that's a referendum on mcconnell. >> folks are mad. they want conservative elected officials. moore was famous in alabama. i knew he was going to win from the jump. i don't know if it's a good or bad thing. we'll see how he performs. i want to ask you about the media. i haven't seen so institution in america that's so one sided that hover talk about.p.go
i talk about the forgotten men and women. people that camei lk from our background or worse. they never talk about them.t all they want to do is destroy this president. >> not only do they want toid destroy president trump but anyone who voted for him and supports him on air or gives him a fair shot. it just goes across the board. look, we're living in a time where there are no more journalistic, rules. i can back up that 50 different ways. i won't bore everybody tonight but i will someday. there are no rules anymore. so your major urban newspapers aren't newspapers, they're left wing journals and they coordinate. and the people on the cable newe shows on the other channels are left wing top to bottom. if you wear a make america great hat into "the new york times" tomorrow and you work there, you won't be working there much longer, all right? it's very, very intense. very intense.
but what's happened now is big money has poured in to organizations like media matters. do you know they threatened you and me if they did this segment tonight. >> sean: they threatened me just to have the segment. >> these people want to wipe out any speech with which they disagree. >> sean: i call them liberal fascists. that's what they are. the most tolerant people as it comes to speech, we defend bill marr. i never in my life -- i can't stand him.ght.t.istsst you are buddies with him. i've never said that kathy griffin should be fired or i don't say that -- i don't care what they say. >> you don't call for boycotts.. >> sean: turn the dial. >> the right can get hateful, everybody knows that, they can. there is not an organization that goes out and threatense people and boycotts sponsors. here is the insidious part.
that's bad enough. there are millions of dollars behind that. those people doing it are being paid to do it. bigs money. cheryl atkinson's book "smear." you've got to read it. this is a brilliant woman, an honest reporter whoer used to wk at cbs. the book is "smear." it will document a to z this big money and these people will do anything. >> sean: bill, every minute of every day we have rush on later this week. every prominent conservative voice is recorded. they're paid to record. they're paid to transcribe. they're paid to look for the one word, sentence, phrase that they can use to attack either advertisers or others. >> advertisers that's insidious. >> sean: it has worked in the past.
>> hannity and i have discussed it off camera. we will fight back. you fought back when they came after you last spring. i didn't and i should have. anyway, this is so dangerous to the country. people don't know how dangerous this is because most people aren't engaged. they don't pay attention. they justan hear things. and these propaganda people throw this stuff out as fact where it lies across the board. >> sean: let me ask you, i think the president has done a great job in terms of doing everything that he promised that he is able to do on his own. i've never seen more impotent people, more ineffective people. people that can't keep simple promises like repealing and replacing and getting it done. you talk about the folks. it is hurting the forgotten men and women. >> certainly in arizona no doubt about it. i was very surprised, i respecti
john mccain. known him for a long time. >> sean: i have a video of him. >> i think it was personal. i think that donald trump angered him and look, you can't blame mccain for that. what trump said about mccain was out of line. i said it on "the factor." i told trump to his face out off line. but sometime down the road if you're john mccain you have to say what's the greater good? what's the greater good? to help my people in arizona paying far too much for their health insurance, or to stick it to a guy i don't like. >> sean: why do people notli ony defeat the president politically they want to destroy him. >> i had the first interview when he declared and i said they'll come after you because what trump does is that he goes right to the people. you don't need the big media. that's what he is doing with the nfl. trump is going right to the people. and he knows and i think he isis right, that most people are agreeing with him. he is going to win that, all
right? so he goes around the media. it's the worst thing you can do to the media. the media in many ways is dying before ouran very eyes. >> it is. >> sean: i don't think they recover from the abuse -- have you heard the conspiracyin theories? it is the most bizarre, russia, russia, russia, bill. 24/7. again to hurt the president. in the process it's not only the president that gets hurt, it is nothing gets done for the country. >> wait until you see what paul manafort gets indicted. fair minded people. there are liberals who are good and fair. fair minded people know there is no objectivity in the media anymore. >> sean: name five democratic senators and congressman. >> manchin. >> sean: he is not reaching out on healthcare? >> you want to know why?
>> sean: because schumer will not let him. >> senator schumer has told all the democratic senators twomo things.wo unless you vote straight party line with us we'll run someone against you in the primary and cut off all your money so you will not have money from the dnc to campaign. every senator has gotten that message, all right? so on close calls they'll goss with schumer. on the tax cut they might get three or four democrats. >> sean: three or four? >> he will have three or four republicans say no. susan collins of maine. she should be a democrat.be >> sean: how about we work for the people? >> absolutely right. >> sean: they're not public servants anymore. >> they're serving themselves. that's nothing new. >> sean: i have never seen the vitriol.
we started on this channel 23 years ago. it's never been this bad ever. >> i have to tell you in the 20 years six months of worked for fnc i was attacked every single day of my life. every day. >> sean: by the way, bull's-eye, the two irish guys. we have to take a break. i want to talk about this. i want to go back to your book. when you talk about institutions today, there is a lot of parallels to what you are writing about that i think we can learn from. >> the dallas school board. i want to get into that. >> s give up, skeletor! you're finished! curse you, he-man, you interfering imbecile! give us one good reason we shouldn't vanquish you to another dimension! ok, guys, hear me out. switching to geico could save you... hundreds on car insurance. huh, he does make a point... i do like to save money... catch you on the flip, suckas! geico. because saving fifteen percent or more on car insurance is always a great answer.
>> sean: welcome back to "hannity" as we continue with >> sean: welcome back to "hannity" as we continue with the author of "killing england." bill o'rielly is with us. so i want to go back to this point. you talked about being a culture warrior. the nfl is a cultural issue. when we talk about tearing downe memorials or breaking up history or acting as though it didn't happen. i always say, though, that this is the greatest country god has given man that has accumulated more power, never abused it less and used its power to advance the human condition. here is my question for you. you talk in this book about once you break down those cultural institutions, really they are setting the country up to say that the whole country is
predicated on evil. >> white supremacy. the constitution is their target. compare it to the book and the parallels. >> i came out with "kinning england" the dallase school bod is debating whether to remove the names of benjamin franklin.. you have washington, jefferson and franklin. we tell you who they are as men, as people both the good and the bad. >> sean: very blunt. >> ben franklin. he was a hugh hefner of his time. the energy this guy had, talk about the kite. thatt wasn't half of it. you've got to -- who is going to stop this madness? you the american people. you have to go to the dallas school board meeting and say i
know who george washington was knand thomas jefferson. yes, they were slave holders but this isd what they did to give hannity and o'rielly the freedom to talk to millions of people and this is how they suffered. they suffered. >> sean: look, all have sinned and fallen short. >> every man, right. >> sean: look at myself first, guilty as charged. no country is perfect. i think the most intriguing thing that never gets talked about of our founders and framers is they created a system unlike any other where theyy built into the system the ability of the people, we, the people, to right wrongs, to end evil and correct injustices and history, bill, has proven it worked. >> you should see the price they paid.pa the price that george washington paid for eight years of war against the king. the one flaw was slavery. but in the civil war hundreds of thousands of whites died -- died to free the slaves.
so this isn't a white supremacist nation. it's the biggest bunch of bull i've ever heard. i want to make people armed and dangerous with facts. read "killing england" you will know who they were and why this country is the greatest country ever. >> sean: 60 plus thousand people loss their lives in the wars in this country and that's why many of them fought under that flag, bill. they fought under the flag and that goes back to the nfl issueh where we started. you know, one of the things that i care at this point in my life more than anything else, i just want the former dishwasher, cook, busboy, waiter, bartender, tile layer, house painter, paper hanger and framer and roofer to have a chance.er i want everybody to have the
shot that we had. >> sure. >> sean: that's what i want. >> if you work hard, get educated and really figure out your talent you'll make it in america. you'll make it here. and the people who are telling you you won't make it because you're black or hispanic are lying to you.ng and they are giving you an excuse to fail. that's racism. >> sean: owens was on my radio show today and said the exact same thing you just said. he said millionaires shouldn't tell people they can't make it. he's right. >> you have to have perspective. you have to have informed -- even if you want to dissent, i respect that. hannity respects it. but be informed. don't be telling me that cops in america go out every day trying to hunt down black people. that's a lie. they don't.
so be informed and make your points on dissent in a way that's rational. >> sean: the country needs, thin goes back to if we have more dialogue, more debate, more information people do better. what the real sad thing is things you've said on your show and write in your books and things i'm saying on this show, nobody else in media says it, bill.eth >> we get attacked. >> sean: i don't care about the attacks.s. >> i know you don't. most people don't want their families attacked. >> sean: it's hard. >> they go after your families, they come on your property. they lie about you. they pay people to lie about you. >> sean: my daughter calls me today they put up a video of you vaping. >> he was smoking opium. >> sean: i said sweetheart, for 16 years of your life i never told you what i live through, i never bring it to their attention. >> now it's worse than ever. >> sean: we're running out of time. i appreciate youin coming in and

they, the far left. >> sean: i contend the future of this country is at stake in ways we don't know. if they'reow successful in takig out this president for reasons or the network. >> this network goes, they win. >> sean: bill, will you come back? >> maybe. we have to go fishing first. i'll come back. i have to hawk this book now. >> sean: that's true. you cann get it on amazon. more "hannity" right after the break.
